This is one of my favorite recipes that my grandmother made for me. Every Christmas she would make Gooey Butter Cake and I would just devour it with her.

Step 1 Ingredients:
  • Golden Butter Recipe Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1/2 c butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
Step 2 Ingredients:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×12″ pan.
  2. Mix cake mix, butter and eggs until thick and smooth.  Creating a slight wall, spread mixture in pan {best with your hands}.
  3.  Mix the remaining ingredients on low until smooth.  Pour over cake mixture.  Bake 35-40 minutes, leaving it slightly gooey.  Garnish with sprinkles of powdered sugar, cool and serve.

This is such a wonderful idea for living room decor. It would be a lovely wedding gift from parents or grandparents.

Featured on Southern Living:

“This is one of my favorite things,” says George of the framed envelope in the dining room. It was addressed by George’s great-grandmother to her uncle, George’s namesake, in 1917. He found it tucked away in his grandfather’s dresser. A local printer scanned and enlarged the envelope.”

Such a simple yet sweet idea to warm your home.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Glass:
  • 1.5oz Vodka (Ciroc seems appropriate but we used a local Pennsylvania vodka)
  • 1.5oz Lillet Blanc
  • 1oz Lavender Syrup (recipe below)
  • 1oz Lemon Juice
  • 2oz Chilled Soda Water
  • French Lavender Flower for Garnish
  • Pitcher (makes 4 glasses):
  • 3/4 Cups Vodka
  • 3/4 Cups Lillet Blanc
  • 1/2 Cup Lavender Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Chilled Soda Water for each glass
  • French Lavender Flower for Garnish

Methodology:

Lavender Syrup:

Add equal parts sugar and water to a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Add fresh organic French lavender to taste (or 1/2 cup dried food grade lavender for every 4 cups water/4 cups sugar) and boil for one minute over medium/high heat. Remove from heat and let steep for an hour.

Drink:

Mix first four ingredients with spoon, pour over ice, add chilled soda water and garnish with lavender flower (or lemon wedges if you can’t find fresh organic lavender).
